Lunch with… Marwa al-Sabouni at Design West Bristol

All event fees are listed net of VAT.

Marwa al-Sabouni is a Syrian architect and author of Building for Hope: Towards an Architecture of Belonging. She is an urban thinker who believes that architects have a duty to stimulate social cohesion.

When war enveloped her city, Homs, she refused to leave and remained a virtual prisoner in her home for two years. In her autobiography, The Battle for Home: The Vision of a Young Architect in Syria, al-Sabouni analyses how architecture and city planning have played a role in fuelling violence and civil conflict by distorting community relationships and fragmenting societies.

Cora Kwiatkowski, Associate Director at Stride Treglown and Board Member at Design West, will host a conversation with Marwa, followed by a Q&A and informal networking opportunity over a light lunch.

This event is open to members and non-members of all genders.

The event will take place on the first floor of Design West, which has lift access. 

This event is in partnership with Festival of the Future City and supported by the British Council.

Please note. The attendance fee for this event attracts VAT (listed prices are inclusive of VAT).
